Spanish Ministry of Education Funds
To develop, on the basis of practical experience in companies in Europe, Asia, USA and Canada, sufficient capacities and professional skills to complement the professional training given in universities, as well as other skills such as linguistic proficiency and the knowledge of different socio-cultural realities.
The FARO Global programme offers students studying their final degree courses in Spanish Universities the possibility of carrying out a period of work experience in companies situated in Europe, Asia, USA and Canada. Its main purpose is to encourage the insertion of university students in the labour world by improving their competences, aptitudes and skills. The grant holder receives also the following economic package on behalf of “FARO Global”, financed by the Spanish Ministry of Education: a monthly payment for accommodation and living expenses which varies depending on the geographic area where the internship takes place: 625€ gross for Europe; between 700 and 1300 € gross for Asia (depending on the destination country); 1100€ gross for U.S.A and Canada. The average duration of the internship is seven months in the event that it takes place in the USA, Canada or Asia, and six months, in the event that it takes place in Europe. Financed by the Spanish Ministry of Education, the Fundación General de la Universidad de Valladolid promotes and administers FARO Global programme. The FARO programme started in 2002. Since then, there have been four editions, three of the Faro programme offering periods in European Union and associated countries, and one of Faro Global, which extended the destinations to companies situated in Asia, USA and Canada. Almost 3000 students from 92 degree courses and 67 Spanish universities have had the opportunity to enjoy a period of work experience in 44 different countries.
